Minero Restaurant Review

: A casual Mexican restaurant from Charleston-based chef Sean Brock, Minero is located at Ponce City Market. Lots of small tables make twosome sipping and nibbling after work a real pleasure, and the long bar, with its mirror faced back wall, is stacked to the ceiling with libations. Corn from three good sources, including one from Mexico, is used to make the fresh-tasting tortillas and the chips. The chips, however, are treated to a rub then fried. We advocate requesting them without the rub so you can taste the corn. Guacamole is chunky and seasoned with onion, lime and cilantro. Just right. We sampled the carnitas --- pork chunks that also appear in a platter --- and a green chorizo, with potato and onion, and quickly marked that as our favorite. You'll find the curiously fusion (low country meets Mexican) burrito with queso de Oaxaca, crema and that Carolina favorite hoppin' john, a black bean dish. For dessert, churros and chocolate are the only option. Traditional drinks include house-made agua fresca (guava), flor de jamaica (hibiscus flower tea) and horchata. Extensive tequila and mezcal selections, beer and cocktails inspired by the flavors of Mexico support the fare. Expect a short but smart wine list.
